While Ravi Kumar qualified for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 77kg category at the CWG and Asian Games selection trials at NIS, Patiala, last edition's women's gold medallist of India, Renu Bala Chanu (58kg), missed the cut.
     
Selection Committee of the Indian Weightlifting Federation has selected the final team contingent for the Commonwealth and Asian Games at Incheon, South Korea from September 19 to October 4.
     
Ravi Kumar's gold in the Delhi CWG came in the 69kg category. Others who earned berths in men's section include Suken Dey, who bagged a silver in 56kg category. Ganesh Mali is another one to qualify in the same section.
     
Omkar Otari (69kg) and Chandrakant Mali (94kg) are the other big names who qualified for the mega-event.
     
In the women's section, none of those who won medals at the last edition of the Games could qualify.
     
Meanwhile, the selection committee also finalised the contingent for the second Youth Olympic Games, to be held at Nanjing, China from August 16 to 28.
     
All the three lists, however, would be subject to change after confirmation of dope test results from the National Anti-Doping Agency.
